She was arranging to send me some information from the Historical records and I was worried when I didn't hear from her. What a shock to learn of her death. My condolences to her family and friends.

Look-Up Request: I am in desperate need of some data on a ALDEN COFFEY. He appears to be related somehow to my grandparents. He was a doctor and had the Alden Coffey Clinic in Ft Worth in the 1940's. My grandfather passed away at his clinic in 1944. Negative replies are as helpful as positive in this case. Thank you for your time and efforts.

Hi Jim,

Look-Up Request: Could you please look up the following people for me: Wylie Millican, wife Maggie and son Phineas Andrew b:1885 in Grapevine. Any info on the surname Millican would be helpful.
thanks in advance....Janice

REPLY:

Hi Janice,

There are about 70 or so Millican names in the Grapevine History Book. However there is no Wilie; Maggie; or Phineas Andrew Millican. If you have any other names send them I will look them up. It is to long to send all.

Look-Up Request: Still loking for William Cisney Foree. Our oral information is an unmarked burial in grapevine area. Just curious, are your books based on cemetary records, or visual recordings of headstones? Wondering how to proceed.

REPLY:
Hi Deran,
I am pretty sure these records in the book I have are done by site. You might check with the Foust Funeral Home, Main Street in Grapevine, TX to see if they have any record of William Cisney Foree. Foust has some of the old record books of burials in Grapevine.
